$500 for Best 2010 Census Waste Photo

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Last week, I announced a photo competition to discover the best photo of 2010 Census waste. Well folks, an anonymous donor has guaranteed that he/she will pay $500 to the best photo, provided that there are 50 or more entries into the competition. So please send in your photos by the Monday of Labor Day Weekend and a winner will be voted on/announced soon after!

PS – We have confirmed that 2010 Census offices around the country have now have upper managers squirming as a result of this competition…Rock on!

MyTwoCensus Photo Challenge: Best photo of 2010 Census waste gets a cash prize

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

MyTwoCensus is running our first photo challenge. After receiving many reports from readers that Local Census Offices around the country are now  recycling and throwing out hundreds to thousands of boxes worth of 2010 Census materials (including,  as one source says, “A truck completely filled with rubber bands, erasers, and pens…”), MyTwoCensus wants to document this waste.

The Census Bureau is trying to do all of these activities on the down-low (ever  since MyTwoCensus posted a photo of boxes on the sidewalks of New York).  So to further expose the Census Bureau’s practices, use your camera phones to take photos of Census Bureau waste at your local census office.

Please send your photo with a caption to mytwocensus [AT] mytwocensus.com. I will post the top entries before Labor Day Weekend and let readers vote on the outcome (with a cash prize for the winner if the person chooses to be identified). All photos will be posted anonymously unless the photographer says otherwise.

Apologies for being MIA for the past 36 hours, but I was traveling and now I am back to MyTwoCensus work…Here’s a great photo:
